EP:23 Educational Fundamentals W. Jared Kutzin
Episode 23 has another great guest Jared Kutzin on the podcast. We were fortunate enough to travel to SimOps 2021 in Tampa, FL where I was able to take a class on Educational Fundamentals & Concepts from Jared and instantly knew we needed to interview him. In this episode, we go over a few of these and understand why everyone needs a basic understanding of them in our industry. Take a listen, you will be glad you did! -David S.

Ep. 22 - Haru Okuda - Where do we go from here?
Recorded LIVE onsite with masks on, at IMSH 2022 in Los Angeles, CA We were honored to get time to sit down and talk with Dr. Haru Okuda. D. Okuda is an Emergency Medicine Physician, the Executive Director of USF Health Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Development (CAMLS) Simulation Center. He also hosts his own podcast: https://health.usf.edu/ipep/podcast That you should definitely be listening to! At the time of the recording, Dr. Okuda was just days away from taking his term of office as the President of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH). We had another topic ready to talk about but thought it was more timely o talk about his hopes and plans for the upcoming year. That just means he will have to come back for the original episode we planned for him! Thank you for all your support. Sincerely, Will & David

Ep 19:The Evolution of the ”Sim Tech” w/ Matthew Charnetski
This episode is one that I have wanted to do for a long time and Will was initially against it. So here is the disclaimer, if you are mad, it's David's Fault. We realize that there are a bunch of different names of our lovely fans out there, but there has been a huge argument in terminology. Even the day we recorded this episode, Dr. Scott Crawford let me know the reasons and the history of the name HSTS "Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist" and the story is fascinating! But we will leave that for a future episode. When I started in Simulation, and for the first 8.5 years I was officially a "Simtech". So when any other term was thrown at me it was so foreign. I have come to terms with the difference and invited a good friend Matthew Charnetski to chat with us about the topic. We filmed this at SimOps 2021 in Phillip Wortham's office, thank you Phil. We have been wanting to get Matt on for an episode because we knew it would be a great time. We were not disappointed, he will be back. So sit back and take a listen, let us know what you think. Love it, hate it, don't understand it, either way, give us a comment and let us know what you think. -David

Ep. 18 - Sim Center Accreditation W/ Phillip Wortham
In this episode, we welcome back our very first guest, Phillip Wortham to the podcast. This episode was recorded live and in-person from SimOps 2021 in Phil's office! We were at the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation, or CALMS for short, in beautiful Tampa, FL. It was the very first time your two hosts have been able to record an episode together. We shot video for the episode, and it's posted on our YouTube channel, but the main camera's video file corrupted. Instead of seeing us, you get the benefit of seeing some great video of the facility, and SimOps 2021, and the wonderful vendors. I obviously have a lot more to learn about recording video. The light behind the vendors was murder on the white balance! Mr. Wortham is among other things a site reviewer for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare's sim center accreditation program. Accreditation is something many simulation centers aspire to achieve but it's a daunting task. Sometimes it is such a large task that some centers do not follow through, or do not even know where to begin. Here as the SimGeek's Podcast, we focus on taking those things that seem hard to do and show you have to approach them. From there We give you resources to follow through, and that is what we do in this episode. So kick back and listen to us talk about accreditation with Phil. It's not that difficult, let's show you. For further information on Accreditation go to: https://www.ssih.org/Credentialing/Accreditation Remmeber, if you like the podcast, follow, like, and leave us some comments and even a review if you want to.

Don’t chance someone’s health Don’t double dip/Cross Contamination - Especially Cream and RMG Buy from reputable sources. https://www.frendsbeauty.com/frends-with-benefits-registration Learning objectives are all that matter Don’t be afraid to say no! (amputations) - Don’t “Hide the leg” if the treatment pathway is the same, go with less materials, and time. Possible upcoming video on some of this to support an upcoming conference - keep an eye out Anatomy matters - Use good reference War Surgery in Afghanistan & Iraq - http://www.cs.amedd.army.mil/Portlet.aspx?ID=0a2c5bb0-6574-4c0c-93d9-cd278271584f Special Effects Guide of Real Human Wounds and Injuries:Special Effects Guide of Real Human Wounds and Injuries - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1977642055/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Materials: Cream makeup - Ben Nye, Mehron, Etc.
